Kalyn Ponga joined Nick, Jess and Simon for his weekly chat on the show and had a whole lot to discuss!
First things first, Simon Baggs couldn’t hold in his plan to hook up Ponga with a date to this year’s Dally M Awards. Baggs posed his co-host Jess as the perfect date for Ponga, who proceeded to ask her be his main squeeze for NRL’s night of nights!
Ponga is looking good to take out the Dally M Award for the 2018 season – at the top of the pack, along with James Maloney, Andrew Fifita and Luke Brooks.
Listen to how Kalyn Ponga asked Jess to be his Dally M date:
Also, coming off the back of State of Origin 1 and QLD’s loss - Ponga revealed that Dane Gaigai played Wednesday night’s State of Origin game with a compound fracture to his finger. The surprise was that Ponga was the one to cause the injury!
Footy greats such as Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin, have said that was that Ponga was the missing ingredient needed to get the Maroons a win. There is optimism that Ponga may be a running contender for State of Origin game 2 – although that might not be such a good thing for NSW!
